Kinsey Johnston has received the second annual Center for Banking and Finance Study Abroad Scholarship in an amount of up to $5,000 and plans to study law and business in Vienna and will have an international internship with the Austrian Federal Ministry of Science, Research, and Economy.

Ford Eubanks (Class of 2017) was awarded the Center for Banking and Finance’s first Study Abroad Scholarship to attend the International Economic Law program at the law school’s international exchange partner, University of Augsburg in Augsburg, Germany.

In addition, Ford was able to travel throughout Central Europe. Ford said, “We often travelled to the home cities of people in the program and they acted as tour guides for the rest of the group. This was a tremendous opportunity for me to learn about international law and explore Europe with wonderful people.
